Attack on Titan: Every Titan and Their Powers Explained

The world of Attack on Titan has expanded many times over as the series has gone on, and one of the most interesting examples of that is the full introduction of the Nine Titans: The Titan forms that certain characters are able to shift into at will. These special Titans connected to the very core of the mystery surrounding the origins of the series itself are the most powerful beings in the franchise, and each comes with their own set of special powers. There are quite a few of them, though, so if you've ever found yourself wondering what specifically each can do, here is a guide to the Titans and their abilities.

Colossal Titan

Arguably the mascot of the franchise, the unforgettable Colossal Titan is the largest Titan of them all, standing at a massive 60 meters. Its sheer size makes it an intimidating figure capable of mass destruction, but it has other oversized versions of normal Titan characteristics as well. All Titan shifters emit heat upon transforming, but perhaps as a side effect of its size, the Colossal Titan's energy is able to be used as a weapon itself, functioning as a sort of bomb in the area that the user transforms in. Similarly, all Titans emit some heat while transformed, but the Colossal Titan has control of the heat that it produces, allowing it to blast blazing hot steam from its body to repel or even burn enemies, though this ability comes at the cost of its muscle mass, eventually forcing the user to exit their Titan form.

Armored Titan

As its name implies, the Armored Titan's greatest strength is the incredibly hard skin that covers most of its body, shielding it from most forms of attack, though it can still be pierced by direct heavy artillery. The armor comes at the cost of speed, but in tough situations, the armor can actually be shed to increase mobility. Of course, with such hard skin, the Armored Titan can also use its body as a giant bludgeoning weapon, destroying even the Walls of Paradis by simply ramming into them. Finally, it is also capable of creating more of its hardened skin on demand, which can be used to create makeshift weapons such as claws.

Attack Titan

The signature Titan form of protagonist Eren Yaeger and the namesake of the franchise, the Attack Titan is a lean form that is well built for close combat. It has no other special abilities for fighting, but it does have a heightened version of a normal shifter Titan ability: a deep connection to the other holders of the Titan. While all of the Nine Titans can access the memories of the previous owners of their Titan, the Attack Titan has a limited ability to see into the future, connecting to the memories of Attack Titan inheritors to come.

Female Titan

While the Female Titan has no inherent powers of its own, it is capable of mimicking the powers of other Titans by consuming parts of them. To that end, it has been demonstrated to be able to control normal Titans to a limited extent, much like the Beast Titan, with the downside that the Titans she calls are compelled to eat her Titan body once they arrive. She can also create hardened, crystal-like skin, similar to the Armored Titan to protect herself, and was able to crystalize while outside of her Titan form to protect herself like the War Hammer Titan.

Beast Titan

The Beast Titan's main ability is taking the form and characteristics of an animal, the specifics of which varies depending on the user of the Titan; Zeke Yaegar's is a giant monkey. Outside of that, Zeke has been able to use his Beast Titan form to control normal Titans, allowing them to move even at night, as well as a limited capacity to harden his skin for protection. He has also been able to turn people into titans by injecting them with his spinal fluid and then screaming, which is similar to an ability of the Founding Titan.

Jaw Titan

Easily the smallest and weakest of the shifter Titan forms, the Jaw Titan uses its size to its advantage by being uncharacteristically mobile for a Titan, capable of maneuvering on a battlefield at overwhelming speeds. Its main offensive tool is, of course, its powerful jaw, which is capable of easily crushing most materials - even, notably, the crystal protection of another Titan. This combination makes the Jaw Titan irreplacable for combat against smaller and more defensive enemies.

Founding Titan

The most important Titan of all and what Marley's Warriors were sent to Paradis to retreive. The Founding Titan's owner is capable of using their screams to control other Titans. Descendents of Ymir can be turned into Titans by this scream, and Titans can be controlled by screams as well, to a level beyond what the Beast Titan and Female Titan are capable of. Descendents of Ymir can also have their memories altered by the Founding Titan, as well as their bodies, down to their very basic biology. Finally, the Founding Titan can communicate telepathically with descendents of Ymir.

Cart Titan

The Cart Titan is a unique form that exclusively maneuvers on all fours. Like the Jaw Titan, it is small and without much in the way of defense, but it doesn't come with the strength of the Jaw Titan to make up for that. Instead, the Cart Titan's skill is endurance. For most Titan users, it is exhausting to transform and there is a limit to how long they can stay transformed. The Cart Titan, on the other hand, is capable of switching between forms often and can stay in Titan form for extremely long periods of time - potentially up to months, based on how long Pieck was transformed while assisting Zeke on Paradis.

War Hammer Titan

The final Titan to be revealed in the series, the War Hammer Titan, uses the common ability of Titans to harden their skin to create weapons made of their crystalized flesh. This makes the War Hammer perhaps the most versatile Titan, as it's been shown to be able to make all sorts of weapons, from swords to whips. In additon, it is the only Titan that is capable of being controlled without the user staying inside the nape of the Titan form's neck. Instead, the user can be connected to the War Hammer via a wire of Titan flesh attached to a hardened Titan crystal containing the user, allowing them to safely control the Titan from a distance.
